A – Z of Locations: A is for Aberdovey

During this year I shall be posting photographs from places around the UK, many of which have not been published before. Where I have previously blogged about a location I will provide a link to the post, though you won’t be able to comment on it as I restrict comments to six months.

Let’s start with A for Aberdovey/Aberdyfi.

Aberdyfi is a thriving little harbour resort set within the Snowdonia National Park, where the river Dyfi meets the blue waters of Cardigan Bay.

I didn’t know very much about Wales before I met the OH and moved to live with him in Shrewsbury in 2002. Weekends saw us popping over the border on many occasions. This was on a very cold February day and I recall having a lovely lunch in the picturesque Dovey Inn overlooking these stunning views of the estuary.

Beautiful views on the way to Aberdovey

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I had only been to Wales once before I met the OH and that wasn’t for a good occasion. Whilst living in Shropshire we spent quite a lot of time in the country, both close i.e. Powys and further afar such as Pembrokeshire. We even honeymooned in Portmeirion! It’s a lovely country, great beaches, interesting castles and mountains too.

  1. Lovely spot. I like how you’re choosing themes such as the 12 days of Christmas and now the A-Z landscapes. I may have to do something like this (with a theme of some sort, not A-Z landscapes.)

    1. I have found that a theme makes me concentrate on the photos to select rather than just randomly choosing them. Of course a challenge open to others is another way of using the blog.

  2. SNAP, as I had similar thoughts regarding A – Z in NZ. Wonderful images, Jude, and the Wales countryside is a picture perfect place though I am sure the weather is more challenging than the UK.

    1. I have thought about an A-Z in Cornwall, but some letters are difficult to track down. I might have to give that one more thought. I’d love to learn more about NZ though so hope you give it more thought.

  3. What a great idea Jude ! It will certainly throw up some new places to discover .
    Aberdovey I’ve only visited fleetingly on one of our dusting off days but would be more than happy to find myself that way again . Super weather for your February photograph !

    1. It’s very pretty scenery around that area, I only wish we could have more drier days to explore this winter so I could capture some equally lovely Cornish scenes. alas it has been wet for weeks. And I mean WET!!!
